If I understand correctly OP wants to use Windows feature called 'Previous
Version' off from BSD filer.
This can be done on FreeBSD + Samba4 adding followings to smb4.conf:
vfs objects = shadow_copy2
shadow:format = %Y-%m-%d_%H.%M.%S--1h
shadow:sort = desc
shadow:mountpoint = <path-to-share>
shadow:snapdir = .zfs/snapshot
shadow:localtime = yes
format is customizable and zfs snapshot should be aligned accordingly
Hope it helps.
